Astronomy links

I've always been fascinated by things in the night sky; when I was a little girl I wanted to be an astronaut. I memorized sky charts and read all the classic science fiction epics.

Living in a city, I don't get to see the night sky, so I content myself with NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day and take delight in reports like today's about an image of the universe (pictured here) just 300,000 years after the Big Bang (that's about 15 billion years ago) from the Cosmic Background Imager.

Maybe someday I'll be a space tourist. Until then, I've heard that there's good stargazing along some of Japan's coasts.
